Welcome to No. 26 – Ventnor

My little shop began its life in February 2018, after a bizarre idea I had to have an extension of my home; a.k.a. ‘my perfect domain’, inside a shop where people might come, look and see and have the opportunity to buy beautiful things and gifts.

Having previously worked in healthcare and education for the 30 years, I was in a rather different set of circumstances which meant I needed to come up with a ‘job’ that I could be in charge of and run in my way.

Its original name was ‘Preloved & Precious’, but once the shop was open for business I realised that a lot of people were put off by the name and thought that I was a charity, second-hand, or antique shop which often resulted in many people just passing by. Something had to be done and so I re-branded very shortly afterwards and No.26 was born!

Please take a look at our Facebook page and ‘like’ and follow us. Since the stock changes so often, as I only buy quality, often bespoke and unusual things, I will update my Facebook page with new stock as well as this site

You can email me if you would like to suggest things you would like to see in my shop or any improvements you would like to see on this site. Thank you.

his is me, Leanne and my two gorgeous Westies Oscar & Bella
